Not really. The product has to convince me, not the ad.
On the other hand ads are a way to introduce new products to the mass. I can't buy what I don't know exists, so ads can bring a product to my attention, which I might buy as long as it convinces me.
Ads for well known products (Coke, Big Mac etc.) have a 0% possibility to convince to buy one right now.
